    Main benefits
    • Easy

      Ready to use system

    • Cost effective

      Small sample volumes

    • Time saving

      Automated circulation and switching


    Complete system

    All the components necessary included.

    Durable experiments

    With OxyGEN’s automated Recirculation protocol, experiments can be prolongued to last up to more than 60h with a fixed amount of fluid.

    Generate complex flow patterns

    Control flow rate or pressure for applications with constant shear stress like vascular perfusion.

    Reproduce complex flow patterns such as aortic pressure variations while maintaining a unidirectional flow in the chip.

    Dedicated protocols

    Build customized, time-base protocols to save time and reduce variability. Fluigent’s products can be automated using user-friendly software (OxyGEN) to significantly increase the duration of your experiments.

    Volume reduction

    Reduce drastically the volume of your experiments and the amount of fluid needed with recirculation.

    Shear stress control

    Fluigent’s products precision and short switching time allows the control of shear stress inside the chip throughout the experiment.
